World Book Day 2021

By February 24, 2021News

Join us on Thursday 4th March to celebrate World Book Day and our love of reading.

This year’s World Book Day will look a little different to usual as many of us will be celebrating at home. Get cosy in your best pyjamas and read, read, read.

Join the ‘Masked Reader’ competition on our school Facebook page. Can you guess which staff member is hidden behind the mask for a chance to win some books?

Join your classmates in displaying a book character or two in your window.

Each key stage has been provided with a table of activities for you to choose from. You can do as many of these as you would like as well as coming up with your own ideas too.
